    Christophe produces just 0.23h of viognier from young vines high up on the hillside on granitic soils in St-Michel-sur-Rhône. Very good value viognier, with typical notes of peach, pear skin, mineral touch and vigour on the finish. Limited quantity. For drinking now to 2018.

    This has a lower alcohol level than most Condrieu – as the winery is just 50 metres from his vines, and he has such a small holding (just 0.33h), Christophe is able to pick the grapes at the precise ‘bon moment’ and retain an acidity which is so often lost in late harvesting. A well handled élevage helps the wine retain freshness and it seems that mica-rich soil gives this apricot and peach-rich viognier an added complexity. For drinking now to 2020+.
